Whole Child Yoga

Presented by Beth Gibbs

Science shows that a relaxed state of awareness is optimal for receptivity, learning, and problem solving. When children, and adults, attain this state of awareness, they can use it to deal with issues like self-confidence, social skills, emotions, peer pressure, personal growth, and academic success. In this workshop teachers, parents and caregivers of children will learn easy-to-use strategies to enhance self-management skills. These techniques have been proven to reduce disruptive behavior and even improve test scores.
